What a great little book! I wish I'd had a copy to pack with me when I went to college. While much of the information does come down to common sense, I do not see that as a negative. In my experience that sort of sense is not only rarely common but is often particularly lacking for young adults, many of them who are on their own for the first time. My mother told me of going to college with no knowledge of how to cook a hamburger or do laundry. She made sure the same wasn't true of us.
Blair Thornburgh, the Editorial Assistant at Quirk Books, stopped by to talk about her job, writing tips, and college advice! If Quirk Books sounds familiar, that might be because they've published books like Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and William Shakespeare's Star Wars.
